AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler Delegate

Definition

Represents the method implemented by the UI Automation client application to handle the event raised by a UI Automation provider when a property has changed.

public delegate void AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(System::Object ^ sender, AutomationPropertyChangedEventArgs ^ e);
public delegate void AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(object sender, AutomationPropertyChangedEventArgs e);
type AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler = delegate of obj * AutomationPropertyChangedEventArgs -> unit
Public Delegate Sub AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(sender As Object, e As AutomationPropertyChangedEventArgs)

Parameters

sender
Object Object Object Object

The object that raised the event.

Examples

In the following example, changes in the IsEnabled property of subscribed elements are handled.


AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler propChangeHandler;
/// <summary>
/// Adds a handler for property-changed event; in particular, a change in the enabled state.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="element">The UI Automation element whose state is being monitored.</param>
public void SubscribePropertyChange(AutomationElement element)
{
    Automation.AddAutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(element, 
        TreeScope.Element, 
        propChangeHandler = new AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(OnPropertyChange),
        AutomationElement.IsEnabledProperty);

}

/// <summary>
/// Handler for property changes.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="src">The source whose properties changed.</param>
/// <param name="e">Event arguments.</param>
private void OnPropertyChange(object src, AutomationPropertyChangedEventArgs e)
{
    AutomationElement sourceElement = src as AutomationElement;
    if (e.Property == AutomationElement.IsEnabledProperty)
    {
        bool enabled = (bool)e.NewValue;
        // TODO: Do something with the new value. 
        // The element that raised the event can be identified by its runtime ID property.
    }
    else
    { 
        // TODO: Handle other property-changed events.
    }
}

public void UnsubscribePropertyChange(AutomationElement element)
{
    if (propChangeHandler != null)
    {
        Automation.RemoveAutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(element, propChangeHandler);
    }
}

Dim propChangeHandler As AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler

        New AutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(AddressOf OnPropertyChange)
    Automation.AddAutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(element, TreeScope.Element, _
        propChangeHandler, AutomationElement.IsEnabledProperty)

        Dim enabled As Boolean = CBool(e.NewValue)

End Sub 'OnPropertyChange


Public Sub UnsubscribePropertyChange(ByVal element As AutomationElement)
    If (propChangeHandler IsNot Nothing) Then
        Automation.RemoveAutomationPropertyChangedEventHandler(element, propChangeHandler)
    End If

End Sub 'UnsubscribePropertyChange

Remarks

The AutomationElement represented by sender might not have any cached properties or patterns, depending on whether the application subscribed to this event while a CacheRequest was active.

Depending on the provider implementation, a property-changed event does not necessarily signify that the property value is different; it might just mean that the property was set, even to the same value. If your application needs to respond only to actual changes, it is your responsibility to track the state of the property.
